Effective leadership entails the application of research-based practices to direct decision-making, communication, and management practices in support of the mission of the organization (in behavior analytic autism services- improved student and adult outcomes). This workshop will provide an overview of research-based practices in effective leadership and how they might best be merged into effective practice on a day-to-day basis.
